1 My Lord, didst Thou endure such smart,
My life, when forfeited, to save?
And didst Thou bear upon Thy heart

2 Am I in Thy remembrance still,
Midst all the glories of Thy throne?
To form Thy servant to Thy will,
And fix my dwelling near Thy own?

3 What can a feeble worm repay
For love so infinite as Thine?
The torrent bears my soul away,
The impetuous stream of grace divine.

4 To Thee, my Lord, it bears me on,
Self shall be deified no more;
By self betrayed, by self undone,
I live by Thy recovering power.

5 Accept a soul so dearly bought;
Bought by Thy life upon the tree;
A soul which by Thy Spirit taught,
Knows no delight but serving Thee.
